Reviewed 16 May 2014 via mobile

Absolutely fantastic food & service. Will definitely be going again. The specials were both lovely - especially the pork cheek. & the sticky toffee was exceptional. Yum!!

“Superb - Great food, wonderful service and a fantastic doggy-bag option...”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

What can I say - well, the food here really is something else; there's no place to get authentic BBQ anywhere in the midlands, and then the Smokehouse pops up and is like, "hello, want some smoky BBQ goodness? I'm your man!"

To be honest, we MAY have ordered a little too much food (but how do you choose?) going for:

Burnt ends
BBQ Beans
Ribs
Pulled Pork
Pulled Pork Chilli
Beef Shin
Mash with garlic and rosemary butter

The point, if there is one, is that it's ALL AMAZING, so much so, that we took the remainder home and polished it off after a few hours...

Oh, the service was also wonderful (although you could have said we were ordering WAAAAY too much!), the atmosphere is lovely and the beers excellent.

We'll be back!

“Great food. Good value.”
Reviewed 15 May 2014 via mobile

I have eaten there 6 times now and have never had a bad meal. Most recently last night when I had the pulled pork starter, ribs for main with royal potatoes


The staff were as friendly as usual and the food is good value. Bearing in mind it was midweek the place was full

“Great ideas and great tastes”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Went to this restaurant a couple of months ago with some friends and thought the idea of bbq food in a restaurant was great. The menu is full of favourites like pulled pork and macaroni cheese... Fabulous! The make up of the menu and the dishs that come are great for sharing. Get a few of those bad boys lined up and just dig in with the people in your party or, if like me just order everything and pick at things to your hearts (or stomachs) content

The atmosphere in the restaurant is great and is smart. The main restaurant is upstairs so don't miss it.

Great evening out with great food

“Amazing and Unique”
Reviewed 12 April 2014 via mobile

I eat out quite regularly and use trip advisor for inspiration but this place currently doesn't feature in leicesters top ranks and so wasn't even on my radar. Thanks to a friend for recommending it, I loved it. Theres nothing like this in leicester. I was so happy with my brisket of beef on a brioche bun. The sides were very reasonable so id say order a few to share... the mash was heaven and loved the mac n cheese. Hope this place stays 'popped up' so i can visit again. Btw this is my first ever review on trip advisor.
